Windows Installation Guide (For PC)
PW-MN5275 has a 5-pin connector with USB 2.0 Interface, and it is mainly designed to provide stability wireless function and performance for embedded system.
For installation, you must be sure to connect this module to your device or system with a connecting wire first. Then, the promoted Found New Hardware Wizard will pop up if the Module is installed correctly.
Take PW-MN5275 WLAN Adapter Card’s XP driver for example as below:
- First decompress the driver package to the local PC. The generated x86 directory is for XP 32bit, and x64 directory is for XP 64bit.
- Click ‘Update Driver…’ to update the driver
- Select ‘Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)’ and then click ‘Next’
- Select ‘Search for the best driver in these locations’ and then click ‘Browse’
- Select the file which we decompress at step 1 and then click ‘OK’
- Click ‘Next’ to start the driver update
- Finally click ‘Finish’
Linux Installation Guide (For Consumer Electronics)
For the Consumer Electronics products which use PW-MN5275, it must provide a corresponding connector for the module. After connecting the module to the device, the hardware installation is finished.
For the Consumer Electronics products, the Linux Driver of PW-MN5275 is embedded in default. So the module is a plug and play device. After connecting the module to the device, PW-MN5275 will work well.
